“Great Experiene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on July 27th. The hotel room we had was unique in the way it was constructed. It had a hallway and then turned into the bedroom. It was a corner room with windows on two sides and more room than most hotel rooms. Everything was spotless and all the staff was welcoming and helpful. We even had a night light in the bathroom. We arrived early and are room was ready and the staff offered sightseeing ideas, information on public transportation, restaurants etc. They were terrific. I would stayed ther again and recommend it to anyone going to Milwaukee.

We stayed Sat. and Sunday during Summerfest. Perfect location. We walked to the site of summerfest easily. There was a shuttle from Mo's bar and restaurant or from one of the nearby city bus stops if needed.
Near many eateries and shops. The location was perfect. It is also near many other Milwaukee attractions. There are wonderful old refurbished buildings mixed in with new buildings. The old downtown feeling which I love.
Warm cookies upon our check-in at the lobby as well as coffee and ice water.
The staff was very welcoming (Michael and Kelly at the front desk and all the lobby staff) and helpful.
The breakfast was really, really good with many healthful choices. The dining room was located near our room, spacious and good looking. The breakfast manager was continuously restocking and making sure all was clean. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: We were away from the elevator, which was probably quieter.

My boyfriend and I spent two nights at the downtown Hampton Inn in Milwaukee recently. Our trip was to go see a Brewers-Cardinals baseball game. The front desk alerted us that a bar called Mo's on the same block has free shuttle service to and from the stadium. That worked great. The location isn't particularly scenic and neither was the view from our room 814. The king suite that we were in was a little oddly laid out, with the little living room area being a long way from the window by the bed. The breakfast was good and varied a little from day to day. I read some Trip Advisor reviewers complaining about the parking garage's link to the hotel, but I thought it functioned well. Compared to some other downtown hotels that charged for breakfast and WiFi, Hampton was reasonable. The staff were helpful and cheerful. I'd probably stay there again.

Very nice location- a short walk or drive to most major MKE attractions. Good variety in breakfast selection. Nice/helpful staff. Hallways were kept very cold, but room had low airflow. Must pay to park ($13.50 for in & out privileges). Kind of expensive, but that's to be expected with the downtown location.

Hotel was close to Summerfest grounds, so we choose to stay at the hotel. We found out at the front desk if you go next door to the irish pub you can get a free shuttle bus to the Summerfest grounds, it worked out very well. The beds need some attention, you roll into the "dip" in the middle, not fun. I wish these hotels would put into place a schedule of matress rotation and purchase spredsheet, it would be so easy to do and the customer would be the benaficiary of the program. There was a nice shopping mall across the street, so that was nice to be able to walk to. The neighborhood was nice, so my wife and I took the river walk that started next to the hotel, it was a nice walk and takes you past several shops and a nice park.
